Nice interview! It definitely helps explain some of the ideas in the essay (which I think is true for all the interviews). Question: Do you think the world would be a better place if more people embraced/relied on kisceral connections? If no, why not? If yes, why/how so? To reveal my own bias, I think yes. But in saying that, a lot of philosophical complexities arise.Thank you @JasonDG for the question, it is Kristine or @LivingWithoutLogic here! This is a tricky question. As you point out, a lot of philosophical complexities come along with dismissing logic, or even emotional argument, for reasons more in tune with the extra-sensual, energy, vibe, or other-worldly oomph that may guide decision-making in one instance over another. That is why I tend to think of arguments, and the reasoning therein, as more of a combination of logical, emotional, visceral, and kisceral (ala Gilbert, 1997) and visual means of communication. When real messages take form in life, we are making sense of them through layered modes of reasoning.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
